Dearie Dolls and Sketch 2-74

Hi there friends!!  Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  It is Sally here welcoming you from Massachusetts.  I speak for the whole Team when I say I am SO HAPPY to have you join us this week. Our wonderfully talented sponsor is Mary Ellen with Dearie Dolls. Below is a little something about Mary Ellen and her store Dearie Dolls. 

If you are new to Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 a BIG welcome to you.  We are excited to have you play along with us and love to see all the wonderful creations each week!!  Do not forget to become a follower to our little blog here, we are so close to having another drawing!!  We just need a few more Followers to reach 200.

Without further ado, I want to introduce you to Dearie Dolls:

Mary Ellen's Dearie Digis are inspired by the wooden dolls she and her husband Kip made together for 25 years. She likes to tell a little story with each illustration. Some of her favorite subjects are snowmen and children.

Most of Mary Ellen's images are free to use.  They are so delightful and you could spend hours looking through the images that she has on her blog.  She has colored and uncolored images to choose from.

Mary Ellen also has a Etsy shop- Dearie Dolls by me where she has some very cute images for sale be sure to stop and take a peek. 

***Special Prize Info***

This week, everyone is a Winner - why??  Because all of the images are Free at Dearie Dolls!!  I do have a last minute announcement though...  Anne, one of our DT has offered a wonderful PRIZE for this week's Winner - A paper pad from Lili of the Valley!!  Check it out by clicking HERE  Remember,  If you want to have an opportunity to be the Grand Prize Winner, you must leave a comment on this Post =).

Before we get on with the Challenge,  I want to announce last week's Winner of 7 free images from Bugaboo!!

Congratulations!  Please contact Sally at   Be sure to grab your winner's badge from the sidebar and display it proudly on your blog.

No Top Three this week - all of the cards were wonderful and it's so hard to single out a "Top Three" with so few entries.  Week's when we have 15 or more, we will announce the Top Three.

I do encourage you to head over to Facebook and check out a few favorites that I posted last night =)

Here is this weeks Sketch. 

And here is some inspiration to get your creative juices flowing!! 




If you have an image from the current week's Sponsor, we'd love to see what you can do with it. However, you may use any stamp or element you have to create your card.

Be sure to check us out on Facebook where we feature a few cards from our challenge each week and preview the new sketch every Tuesday.

Blessings to you!!
